Happy days are here again…okay happy bear faces with fantastic colours of pink, blue, yellow and bear brown are here.
Meet the whole collection of bear fabrics with coordinating polka dot “freckle” fabric and a tribal print to complete the look over at our new fabric shop.
More fabric coming soon.
We all need a bit of help every now and again and lucky for me our 2 year old is always on hand to help with a bit of painting.
Lots of colours are her favourite, rainbows, hand printing (which includes teddy with painted paws) and circles.
The wee one was not left out though she just preferred to play with a couple of balls…life is so much more interesting when you take time to paint hands, play ball, sing songs and hangout with your sister!
Today the light filled the studio along with flowers, fabric swatches and fun times.
The fabric is a sneak peek at a new line available at Modern Yardage…as soon as it is online I will shout it out! Love this colours! Yay!
Never one to miss the action…..love baby cakes!
Time flies when you are having fun is so true….As well as baby growing (and crawling into every nook and cranny!) I had my first glimpse of the new fabric line and have been working behind the scenes on new projects. Work is fun, not always easy to balance the time between work and family and the one area that suffers the most when times get busy is the blog!

Spring is a little fickle at the moment, one day glorious sunshine and green leaves budding with blooms in full floweriness and the next day, cold and grey and soggy fallen petals. So ever the optimist lets shout out SPRING with a new collection of patterns and colours inspired from a few blooms I have outside.
I love paper. I am a paper Junkie.
Now that we have the confessions out of the way I can say paper for me is an inspiration.
I draw on it, paint on it, cut out shapes, print on it, fold it and make secret plans…..
Paper is such a big part of my daily life, from list making (always with doodles down the side) to making presents look as beautiful on the outside as the inside, designing on it everyday and creating decorations that string together all my ideas.
It’s my favourite way of making a mood board and pulling together colours and textures for my latest collections.
I have the greatest time designing patterns for paper products – florals, stripes, geometrics, watercolours, the list is endless and there must be at least one or two pieces of patterned paper for everyone. What is your favourite paper?
